Risk Level Changes

Nigeria Very High 3.2 from High 3.1: Abduction of 12 crew members from a bulk carrier off Bony in September 2018 indicates residual threat of pirate kidnap for
 ransom and of petty theft, notwithstanding fact that last successful oil cargo theft was reported in August 2016.

Risk Score Changes  

Argentina Elevated 1.8 from Elevated 1.7: Increasing protests against government’s economic policy likely to include ground cargo disruption by resumed truckers’
 strikes. 

Eritrea Elevated 2.0 from Elevated 2.2: Reduced ground and aviation cargo risks as a result of rapprochement between Eritrea and Ethiopia, including opening of
 land borders/airspace.

‘Risk’ indicates overall country risk. Subsequent columns specify whether or not there is a particular risk to cargo assets in the category quoted.

What is the Risk Scale?

6.5 And AboveExtreme
4.4 to 6.4Severe
3.2 to 4.3Very high
2.4 to 3.1High
1.6 to 2.3Elevated
0.8 to 1.5Moderate
0 to 0.7Low

The risk scale ranges from 0 - 10. The scores enable the comparison of risk between location, providing a greater degree of precision than risk bands alone (e.g. Extreme). Each risk band has been colour coded to be consistent with the system used by IHS Country Risk
